Meg Lunnum of Bats Northwest and Happy Valley Bats (rehab facility in Happy Valley) near Stanwood. Meg is a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife permitted wildlife rehabilitator specializing in bats. As such, she applied for and received a grant to build a bat infirmary. This special building was much appreciated when she received 10 baby bats in 2009. Meg has been going strong ever since. She is active with Bats Northwest and teaches children and adults of all ages about bats and their habitat.
About monthly meetings: SWS-Camano monthly meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at Cama Center. During the first hour we discuss what our citizen science, beach monitoring, sound toxins and many other teams have learned or done recently. And we present opportunities for upcoming involvement. All SWS are welcome. The public is welcome to attend as well, particularly for the Guest Speaker’s Educational Presentation in the second half of the meeting.
If the first Monday is a holiday, the meeting will be the following Monday.
NOTE: Discovery Pass is required to park at Cama Beach State Park. Tickets will be issued to people parking without a pass. If you don’t have one, be sure to pick up a temporary purple pass signifying you are a local volunteer. The volunteer pass is only good for Camano’s two state parks.
